Remove a Bike 

**Please note, it is a good idea to inspect the bike you wish to check out before doing so. I.E. Pinch the tires to make sure they are not flat, ensure you can adjust the seat to the proper height, squeeze brake levers, etc.**


Use your BCycle card

Touch the silver button on the dock of the bike you wish to check out, tap your B-Card on the reader and away you go!

Or...

Use your credit card at any station kiosk to buy a Single or Multi-Trip Pass. Choose your bike and complete your transaction using the kiosk touch-screen. When prompted enter the dock number of the bike your wish to checkout. If you are annual or monthly member and do not have your card, you can still get a bike by verifying your identity at the kiosk. 

Get comfy

BCycle bicycle seats are adjustable to fit a range of riders. Throw your stuff in the front basket and you are ready to roll! Front and rear lights shine automatically when you pedal to help you see and be seen.
